COVID-19 and Illness Testing
Patients with or without symptoms can walk in to any Primary Health urgent care clinic to be tested for COVID or other illnesses. Most PCR test results are back in 48 hours or less.
Please provide insurance information if you would like us to bill your insurance company. Most insurance plans cover the cost of COVID testing and the associated visit; copays and deductibles may apply.
For patients who are uninsured, federal programs no longer cover the cost of COVID testing. We offer a discount on some services if paid in full at the time of visit. Otherwise, we accept regular monthly payments.
Self-pay rates for COVID testing:
- PCR test - $124 plus nurse or provider fee
- Antigen rapid test - $52 plus nurse or provider fee
Masks are required for patients with COVID symptoms or COVID exposure within the past 10 days. Children age 17 and younger may be seen in Pediatric Urgent Care, and are also welcome at all other Primary Health locations.

Symptoms or Exposure: When to Get Tested
People with COVID-19 symptoms should be tested regardless of their vaccination status. Testing is critical when it comes to understanding how the virus is spreading, so patients can isolate as necessary and health care providers can plan for community needs.
- People who have known exposure to someone with suspected/confirmed COVID-19:
- Wear a mask for 10 days (even if vaccinated), and get tested on day 5 after exposure
- If symptoms develop after exposure, get tested right away and quarantine at home
- Anyone who tests negative after being exposed to COVID-19 but then develops any COVID symptoms should be tested again immediately.
Some limited treatments are available for COVID. Therapeutic options are restricted to certain age groups and within certain timeframes of symptoms, for people with certain medical conditions, and available only to those who are not on medications that could cause serious drug-drug interactions. If you are interested in treatment options, please see a urgent care provider or your primary care provider to discuss your options.
View the Patient Questionnaire that will be given to any patient seeking treatment with Paxlovid. View the FDA’s fact sheet for patients considering Paxlovid treatment.
